Our Team » Ralph Martin
Ralph came here to be stationed at the Coast Guard Training Center in Yorktown and has lived in Gloucester since 1996. He retired from the Coast Guard in 2003. “Semper Paratus!”
He found his way at the The Roofing and Remodeling Company (then The Roofing Company) shortly after his retirement in 2003 as a temp-to-hire employee from Headway Temp Agency. Mel Forbes hired him and gave him a chance after he felt no one else in Tidewater would. Lucky for us because Ralph is a huge asset to our team! The feeling is mutual since he also enjoys being part of a close-knit team that is doing important work. As the Administrative Department Manager, he plays a very important role that involves the admin, production and sales teams and our always important customers. Ralph is the driving force to ensures the administrative staff receives the necessary training, such as phone etiquette and product knowledge to name a couple. Ralph is an avid reader. Outside of work he frequents several libraries between Hampton and Gloucester to find that next good book. For Ralph that’s no big challenge since his interests are quite diverse!
I have relied on The Roofing Company for all work on my home’s roof since 2006. Brian Chalsma is an absolute professional who is passionate and meticulous about his work.
